SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The St. Louis Area Foodbank recently received a $5,000 Partners in Giving donation from Nationwide Private Client in honor of The Daniel & Henry Co. This donation will help the food bank provide 20,000 meals for families in the bi-state region during a critical time of the year.
Private Client is Nationwide's personal lines carrier focused on the affluent market. Its appointed independent agents are offered an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others with charitable donations in their local communities through the Partners in Giving program.
“Partners in Giving provides our agency partners with opportunities for us to make charitable donations on their behalf — helping them give back to the communities where they live and work,” stated Jim Pedersen, president, Nationwide Private Client. “This form of giving is foundational to our culture and integral to our success. It is a constant reminder that, in our efforts to serve our clients, we are also generating meaningful support for local communities.”
“We are honored to participate in the Partners in Giving program, as commitment to our community is one of our core values,” said Bob Harrison, president, The Daniel & Henry Co. “We selected the St. Louis Area Foodbank due to its ongoing commitment to fight hunger in our region and because of the valuable work it does to feed those in need.”
“We are honored to have been chosen by The Daniel & Henry Co. and Nationwide Private Client for their charitable donation,” said Frank Finnegan, president and CEO, St. Louis Area Foodbank. “The summer months are a busy time for organizations like ours. Kids who were receiving free or reduced-price meals at school are now home, and those meals have to be made up by the partner agencies that we serve.”
To date, Private Client has contributed $765,000 to organizations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, Tennessee and Washington through the Partners in Giving program. Private Client has committed an additional $266,000 for further charitable donations.
